|Quest Name: A Special Order|
Location: Town of Giran
NPC: Grocer Helvetia
Reward: Wondrous Cubic
This quest starts in the town of Giran with Grocer Helvetia. There
are two different 'options' for completing this quest. You are randomly
given one of the two options when you start the quest. If you do not
want to do the option you are given, you can abort the quest and
restart it until you get the option you want.
For the first option you need to use the manor system and gather
some harvested fruits to complete the quest. The seeds you will need to
manor are all within effective manoring range of a L40 character to
approximately L48. You do not have to buy or use seeds for a specific
region, so you can harvest the fruits needed from any manor that offers
those seeds. This is usually the fastest way to complete the quest for
The second option requires a quantity of Orange Fish of the three
basic types. For this you will want at least a C grade fishing pole and
C grade fishing shots. The optimal level of fishing expertise for this
is roughly L15 or so...but it's actually better if you are over this
level and use an Orange Fishing potion to reduce your fishing expertise
to the necessary level, so you have a better chance of getting exactly
the fish you need. This option is always available if you can't or
don't want to use the manor, although it does take longer to complete
For Option #1 Helvetia will send you to Warehouse Chief Gesto in
Giran. You are going to need buy, plant and harvest the following
fruits from the manor system for him. Golden Cobol, Thorn Cobol and
Great Cobol. You will need 40 of each of these three fruits. You may
need to buy a few extra seeds to ensure you have enough fruits for the
quest depending on your level and where you are manoring these seeds.
Note, the quest text keeps calling the required items "Seeds", but
it actually is the harvested fruits that it wants. These seeds are all
easily manored with a L40 character on 1x HP field mobs. Once you have
all 120 fruits (40 each) go back to Gesto and he will put them into a
jar for you to give to Helvetia.
For Option #2 Helvetia will ask you to talk to Fishing Guild Member
O'Fulle. O'Fulle is in the same room as Helvetia, so you don't have to
go far to reach him. For O'Fulle you need to aquire 10 each of the
basic Orange Fish types. These are the Orange Ugly Fish, Orange Nimble
Fish and Orange Fat Fish. The "Small" or "Large" orange fish of these
types are NOT usable for this quest. This is why using an Orange
Fisherman's potion is recommended to adjust your fishing expertise
level to maximise your chances of getting the correct fish you need.
Once you have all 30 fish (10 of each type) return to O'Fulle and he
will put them in a chest for you to give to Helvetia. Any other fish
you caught while doing this can be taken care of normally. (Sell, Open
Regardless of which quest option you chose the reward from Helvetia
will be the same. a special item called the "Wondrous Cubic". The only
real difference between the two options will be how hard or easy it
will be to complete and how long it will take. You should be able to
finish either quest option within a couple hours at the most. (Faster
for manor, longer for fishing.)
The cubic works simply by clicking it while it is in your inventory.
(You cannot use this item while sitting down.) Clicking the cube
randomly rewards you with a colored cubic piece. The cube can generate
a cubic piece once every 24 hours. This is a strict timer, and unlike
the Kamaloka instances, it does not reset at a specific time each
There are two 'types' of cubic pieces (Rough or Fine) and five
different colors of cubic pieces. (Blue, Yellow, Green, Red and White.)
These cubic pieces have an adena value of zero to normal NPC stores.
The warehouse Freightman in every town however, will sell you enchant
scrolls in exchange for adena and a specific cubic piece. (1 scroll per
The type of cubic piece determines what enchant scroll you can trade
for. A rough cubic piece is needed for enchant armor scrolls and the
fine cubic pieces are used for enchant weapon scrolls. The color of the
cubic piece determines what the grade of the scroll will be. Blue is D
grade, Yellow is C grade, Green is B grade, Red is A grade and White is
S grade. The adena amount needed with each cubic piece does scale with
the enchant offered. The full list is:
Rough Blue Cubic Piece + 18,000 adena = Enchant Armor D grade.
Fine Blue Cubic Piece + 150,000 adena = Enchant Weapon D grade.
Rough Yellow Cubic Piece + 45,000 adena = Enchant Armor C grade.
Fine Yellow Cubic Piece + 330,000 adena = Enchant Weapon C grade.
Rough Green Cubic Piece + 80,000 adena = Enchant Armor B grade.
Fine Green Cubic Piece + 1,500,000 adena = Enchant Weapon B grade.
Rough Red Cubic Piece + 720,000 adena = Enchant Armor A grade.
Fine Red Cubic Piece + 5,400,000 adena = Enchant Weapon A grade.
Rough White Cubic Piece + 1,500,000 adena = Enchant Armor S grade.
Fine white Cubic Piece + 15,000,000 adena = Enchant Weapon S grade.
Your chance of getting a specific cubic piece is not completely
random. The most common are the Blue and Yellow pieces. You will get
these roughly 90% of the time. (Of these roughly 60% will be blue and
40% yellow) For the remaining colors, I would estimate a 5% chance of
green, 3% chance of Red and 2% chance of a White. The chance of a Rough
cubic piece versus a Fine cubic piece is perhaps closer to 50%. (Or
60%/40% at worst.)
Each character on your account can have their own cube and use it
once per day. (The re-use timer is character specific.) If each
character on your account has a cube, this gives you seven chances at a
specific cubic piece per day. It's not a cheap method of aquiring
enchant scrolls, nor is it consistent. But it is reliable. If nothing
else, you can sell the resulting scrolls or cubic pieces to other
